Sayings and Signings (The blog.)

I’ve been a fan of Nate Powell for a long time.

I first encountered his work more than a decade ago when I worked as an assistant editor at Dark Horse Comics. Nate sent in samples of his work to see if we’d publish him, and I championed his intense, beautifully-drawn comics. Nothing came of that, unfortunately, but it didn’t seem to hurt Nate too badly. He went on to receive a grant from Shakespeare and company Books to self-publish his first comics series, Walkie-Talkie. Tiny Giants and the Ignatz-Award-winning Swallow Me Whole came followed from Soft Skull Press and Top Shelf respectively. So, yeah, he dealt with the rejection well.
